Great Book... but the recordings... meh
I know Librivox is a volunteer program but there is no excuse to have audio that is so bad it cant be listened to. You don't donate broken stuff to Goodwill, you don't upload bad audio to Librivox.
I do appreciate the few recordings that are professional. What else is there to say? Its free.

I understand the point of Librivox, but at the same time I think when listening to an audiobook I should be able to understand what I am hearing. I'm not here. There's a reader in this book of whose readings I cannot even distinguish individual words. Quite Unreal.
